        Doesn't seem very popular on gitub. I thought Zend is much older.

        Zend ~13 years old (1,878 stars)
        Sinatra ~12 years old (10,504 stars)
        Flask ~10 years old (43,390 stars)
        Express.js ~9 years old (43,370 stars)

        PS: Laravel ~7 years old (16,963 stars)

          zend 1 was super popular before 2010
          https://github.com/zendframework/zf1
          (but you will not see stars, because github was not super popular back then ).

          IIRC it was most popular php framework. but laravel killed it (as almost anything else in php land)

          I don't understand why Linux Foundation wants to maintain it.

            Apache Foundation-alike move? Plus rebranding to try to gain some fresh traffic.

              I doubt if rebranding will give any fresh traffic. there are thousand php frameworks, only a few are popular and one is super popular. if zend company was not able to build zend popularity over years, Linux Foundation will not achieve more here.

              I don't think that there are a lot of devs who care about zend. the only group that may care about this framework is project owners who made bad decision to build service on it.

                Is Zend still a thing?
                My career as a professional PHP developer has fortunately been behind me for a few years now. But even back then most serious applications were built on top of Symfony or CMS like Joomla or Drupal. The only exception I could spontaneously think of was Magento.
